Sometimes you have to break the rules to right a wrong.

Janet Cardona is usually a by-the-book good girl--but when Matt Carrington won't give her cat back, she sees red. Rules mean nothing when there's an animal to be saved.

I'm really enjoying these sweet romances. I thought it was funny that the opening scene showed Janet as a cat burglar trying to steal a cat. She isn't that type of person at all. She values honestly above all else and hates to be caught in a lie, but that's exactly where she finds herself when she is discovered by the one who "stole" her cat--Matt.

Matt comes across as very smooth. He seems to have no problem living a lie, yet he's not as good of a liar as he thinks he is, because Janet can tell

I received A Little Blackmail in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by Prism Book Tours. Janet just wants her cat back, when Matt refused to give her back her cat she takes it into her own hands. On a dark night dressed in black Janet scales the walls of the house intent on rescuing her baby but didn’t expect to be caught by Matt. When Matt threatens to call the cops for her breaking in but he offers her a chance to work it off pretending to be his wife. Determined to get her ...more

“A Little Blackmail” is the second book in a series of books by Helen Conrad that I am so happy to be reviewing. Originally these books were published under different titles and with a lot more steam to them. Here’s what the author has to say about them. “The Sweet Editions cover the same stories, but with most expletives and all explicit sexual descriptions removed, rewritten and softened for those who prefer it that way.” That would be me. And I’m so glad to see this author do this. It makes ...more

I enjoy books that follow a family and let you get to know the characters better through multiple books, so this series is right up my alley. A Little Blackmail picks up with Matt Carrington (brother of Reid Carrington from Run Run Runaway). Matt is obviously hiding something, so Janet's unexpected arrival (behind the curtains of his second story bedroom!) definitely has the potential to complicate thing

Janet is an orphan girl who lives alone with a cat, Alexander, who is very much attached . She's forced to go away on business for a few days and the cat ends up in an animal shelter and soon after is bought. To recover it, she is all too ready to sneak into the house of the new owners during the night. Unfortunately, her plan backfires and she is discovered by Matt ..... Matt threatens to call the police it will not only if she will pretend to be his wife Vanessa . The girl accepted after much

Imagine going out of town and having a close friend take care of your most beloved possession. In Janet's case, that happens to be her cat, Alexander. She comes home only to find that her cat has been taken by the animal rescue and they have rehomed her cat with someone else. Janet is distraught; all she has left from before her dad died is Alexander....well, Alexander and her two assistants.

Janet has always been a law-abiding citizen, but this business with Alexander makes her lose it! She's m

continued romance

continued romance

This is a review on book number two it started out really slow for me I didn't get the same feelings I got in book number one.

Once I got into reading it right around the second or third chapter I finally settled down and got into the storyline. Not a big fan of mystery so this is what it felt like to me more of a mystery then a romance in the beginning. Like I said once I got into it became more of a romance and I really enjoyed it.

Now I can't wait to read boo

Great continuation of the Carrington family story. I enjoyed the first book a lot and this wasn't any different. I loved it. I understood Janet and her motivation to get her cat back. I liked the way that she was uncomfortable taking the risk but did it anyway. Matt was a little more predictable for me. I figured out what he was doing well before it even started being hinted at that he wasn't exactly what he seemed. That would normally bother me, but it didn't this time because he was such a ...more

In this 2nd book the storyline need more of a romantic feel. I didn't like the Matt either in this book, I felt it was very wrong to con the old lady. I thought Janet was very dumb for going along with Matt's plan just for a cat.
